Claunch-Pinto Soil and Water Conservation District

The Claunch-Pinto Soil and Water Conservation District was organized on September 17, 1941. That day the District was issued a Certificate of Organization from the State of New Mexico signed by the Secretary of State, Mrs. Jessie M. Gonzales. Part of the West Torrance District was consolidated with the Claunch-Pinto District in 1967.

The District consists of 1,291,779 acres located approximately in the center of New Mexico. The District encompasses the southern part of Torrance County, the northeastern part of Socorro County, the northwestern part of Lincoln County, and the southern tip of Valencia County. Towns and villages located in the District are Abo, Claunch, Corona, Manzano, Mountainair and Punta de Agua. Mountainair is the largest municipality with approximately twelve hundred people.

The goal of the District is to promote use of conservation practices and resource management methods to enhance watershed health and productivity. Conservation practices may include brush management, fencing, or water development, range seedings and water diversions. Resource management techniques may include planned grazing systems, and/or proper grazing use.
